24 Mar

Today we are writing an in-class synthesis essay.

Prompt (In Classroom)-

Jessica Lahey beings her article in The Atlantic by stating, “Letter grades are a tradition in our educational system, and we accept them as fair and objective measures of academic success. However, if the purpose of academic grading is to communicate accurate and specific information about learning, letter, or points-based grades, are a woefully blunt and inadequate instrument.”

In recent years there has been much discussion in the educational community about the purpose and effectiveness of grading students. Write an essay which states your stance on this issue. Be sure your response cites at least 2 sources and clearly takes a stand on the issue of grades.

You may hand write or type.
